Too much tech in your home? Here's how to deal with it

If you live with a family of impressionable children, then it’s fairly standard to have piles and piles of old electronic devices that we simply don’t know what to do with. Some people love hoarding old tech and they’ll keep entire cupboards or boxes full of things like cables, batteries, old games consoles and phones. Even if they don’t work, they’ll still keep them around for nostalgia purposes, and some kids even insist on keeping their old phones despite upgrading “just in case” their new phone breaks.

Keeping around so much tech can be bothersome, so it’s important to find ways in which you can deal with it. If you leave this unchecked, then sooner or later you’re going to find old phones, games and even electronic toys just laying around the home. Sadly, you can’t just throw these out—that would be irresponsible. It’s important to dispose of old tech in a proper manner because the components and batteries can actually cause harm to the environment if disposed of incorrectly. In fact, the toxic materials inside electronics can cause several different health complications, which is why we can’t just simply throw them away with the rest of our trash.

The proper way to dispose of old electronics would be to use a recycling service. Even if your tech and electronics don’t work anymore, the parts inside could be reused. In the event you have something so old that nobody can work with, it will be disposed of in an efficient and eco-friendly manner that won’t harm the environment.
